Abstract

A protective garment system is disclosed. The protective garment system may include a plurality of chest padding, a plurality of abdominal padding, a plurality of lateral padding, a plurality of back padding, a plurality of hip padding, a plurality of upper leg padding, a plurality of knee padding, a plurality of lower leg padding, an exemplary upper garment, an exemplary lower garment, a plurality of padding filler, an exemplary headwear and a plurality of head padding. The plurality of padding may be disposed on the plurality of exemplary articles of clothing so as to provide a comfortable wearing experience and to protect the most vulnerable portions of the human body. A user may wear at least one of exemplary articles of clothing on their body for everyday use. Then if the user experienced a fall, the plurality of padding would reduce the risk of serious injury by absorbing the shock and or impact of the fall.

Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention relates to protective padded garments and, more particularly, to everyday wear that can reduce the risk of injury for individuals, especially those with a much higher risk of being seriously injured from a fall.
  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every year approximately one-third of people 65 and older suffer a fall each year; one out of five such falls causes a serious injury such as a head trauma or fracture; over 2 million older adults are treated in emergency departments for nonfatal fall injuries each year; and direct medical costs for fall injuries total over $28 billion annually.
  • Falls are the bane of older adults for many reasons. Besides degenerative physical deterioration, many elderly suffer from osteoporosis, which is a condition that is characterized by a decrease in bone mass and density which can lead to an increased risk of fracture.
  • There are a variety of non-elderly adults, too, for whom commonplace falls pose dangerous consequences as well as hamper the ability to lead active, independent lives. Such as individuals on anticoagulants, people with diabetes, individuals with varicose veins or any other ailments that prevent normal wound healing. What these individuals have in common is that if they fell or bumped into an object it can develop into a hematoma or wound that will need long term medical intervention.
  • Currently shock absorbable technology in garments is geared to the vagaries of sports activity or is for cosmetic enhancement and not geared for everyday use, which in turn requires such garments to be washable, comfortable and appropriate for meeting dress codes or otherwise socially acceptable.
  • As can be seen, there is a need for garments that reduces the risk of serious injury when the user experiences a fall or other collision.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • In one aspect of the present invention, a protective garment system comprises: an upper garment of material configured for wear by a human on the torso thereof, wherein the upper garment forms a plurality of upper padding regions shaped to compliment portions of the torso and back region of a wearer; a plurality of pocket sheets of material anchored to the upper garment forming a plurality of padding cavities between the plurality of upper padding regions and the plurality of pocket sheets; and a plurality of padding received in the plurality of padding cavities between the upper garment and the plurality of pocket sheets, whereby the human wearer would be socially appropriate for all types of indoor and outdoor activity.
  • In another aspect of the present invention, a protective garment system comprising, a lower garment of material configured for wear by a human on the lower portion thereof, wherein the lower garment forms plurality of lower padding regions shaped to compliment portions of the lower half of a wearer; a plurality of pocket sheets of material anchored to the lower garment forming a plurality of padding cavities between the plurality of lower padding regions and the plurality of pocket sheets; and a plurality of padding received in the plurality of padding cavities between the lower garment and the plurality of pocket sheets.
  • These and other features, aspects and advantages of the present invention will become better understood with reference to the following drawings, description and claims.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • FIG. 1 is a front view of an exemplary embodiment of the present invention;
  • FIG. 2 is a rear view of an exemplary embodiment of the present invention;
  • FIG. 3 is a perspective view of an exemplary embodiment of the present invention;
  • FIG. 4 is a section detail view of an exemplary embodiment of the present invention along line 4-4 in FIG. 1; and
  • FIG. 5: shows a front and back view of an exemplary embodiment of the present invention.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • The following detailed description is of the best currently contemplated modes of carrying out exemplary embodiments of the invention.
